Me and My Shadow, 8x10

This is the demo painting I did yesterday at the Studio Tour Sale. The Pieces of Eight had a good time and we met such nice people all day long. Two women came all the way from Orlando.
This little girl is the granddaughter of my cousin in Alaska. I just love seeing children ponder their own shadow. It reminds me of a poem in one of my childhood books:
"I have a little shadow that goes in and out with me,
And what can be the use of it is more than I can see."
Now we know the shadow's use--it's for artists to enjoy painting...
